Some neglect scrubbing our lips often, ideally you should be scrubbing away dead skin 3 times a week or less. Dead skin causes lines and wrinkles around the lips, use a mixture of sugar and olive oil to exfoliate any roughness of your lips for a smoother, softer looking lip.
After exfoliating, it’s key to add a lip balm or petroleum jelly to your lips at night since our skin retains the most moisture. A lip balm will add the boost of moisture that your lips need to be softer. If you are planning on staying out in the sun, use a lip salve with SPF to protect your lips.
Color Me In
Now it’s time to add some color, whether you are a lip liner kind of girl or a lipstick buff, choose a product that you feel comfortable using. Lip liners are the easiest way to keep your lip color on for hours, even after the lipstick wears off. Add a bit of lip gloss to the center of your lips and voila you are done!
